End to short respite of vehicle clamping.
Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) will resume clamping cars that are parked haphazardly in critical parts of the city, a mere two days after it was announced that the enforcement practice will be suspended.
Kuala Lumpur mayor Tan Sri Mohd Amin Nordin Abd Aziz said tight enforcement was needed as people were breaking traffic rules, causing traffic problems.
“DBKL enforcement officers will decide on the critical areas, and clamping in those areas will resume tomorrow,” he told The Star.
However, he did not name these critical areas, as a final list was still being compiled.
The Star had previously reported that illegal parking increased in Bangsar, Taman Tun Dr Ismail (TTDI), Sri Petaling and Taman Danau Desa between 10am and 1.30pm after vehicle clamping was stopped.
The mayor had also previously said that the areas most likely to see such problems included commercial areas such as Solaris Mont Kiara, Bukit Damansara, Sri Petaling, Kepong and TTDI.
Mohd Amin had on May 28 said that the clamping of vehicles would be suspended as several Kuala Lumpur MPs had requested for DBKL to review its parking contract with Yayasan Wilayah Persekutuan (YWP), the welfare arm of the Federal Territories Ministry, as DBKL had not called for an open tender.
In 2016, YWP outsourced its parking contract to Vista Summerose Sdn Bhd. – The Edge Markets
